We're halfway through August, so what's been trending this summer?
Seasons change, and our wardrobes change with them. Keeping up to date with the latest jewelry and clothing trends can be a burden on the wallet, but it’s always great to look good. Emily Neimchek, a Suetables fan, covers some of the refreshing summer jewelry trends.
Nothing complements summer whites like a vibrant dash of color. Add a bit of zing to any outfit with bright greens, yellows and turquoises. It doesn’t need to be overpowering - just a little bit of color will set of a summery skirt or even jeans and a top perfectly. Look out for colorful rings, bracelets and earrings to complement your summer glow.
Art Deco Design
Summer is a time of freedom, style, sunshine and happiness. It is a time where moods are lighter and people feel like they can be themselves. What better way to encourage a happy-go-lucky attitude than with quirky art deco jewelry? Mixing your metals along with the mixture of vintage, old-fashioned jewelry style with a more modern, edgy flavor adds the perfect touch of summer sunshine to an outfit. Go for longer, chandelier-style earrings, classic pearls teamed with edgy shapes and bracelets and pendants which combine grace and elegance with a refreshingly modern air.
For beach babes who prefer a quiet book on the warm sand to splashing in the ocean, pastels or simple classic sterling silver styles are the perfect accessory for a sweet, studious summer. Delicate pastels complement most wardrobe colors, and can add a touch of elegance and style to a basic wardrobe. Look for bracelets, necklaces and earrings set with delicate pinks (rose gold works too), lilacs and soft reds for an effects as warm and pleasant as the weather.
Rough Around the Edges
To accessorize a classic summer bohemian outfit, large, roughly-cut stones and shapes add a simple but pretty tone. Brights and pastels are both excellent choices for raw, chunky jewelry, and a gorgeous necklace of large, colored stones is the perfect way to get behind this summer jewelry style. A ring set with a big, bright centerpiece or a chunky, stylish bracelet are also great ways to add some 'boho charm' to the summertime.
Another statement-making piece which will suit soft, flowing summer dresses is a geometric necklace, bracelet or pair of earrings. The sharp edges can be large and loud or muted and understated. Either way, geometric shapes will balance out the soft lines of loose summer clothing perfectly. Try classic metals and muted colors, or go all-out with bright, summery colors to really catch the eye.
If the old-fashioned allusions of art deco aren’t quite right, surely burnished silver metals, bold futuristic shapes and designs and heavy, asymmetric styles will be the perfect way to set off a tan and make a statement. The slightly edgy futuristic fashion trend is perfect for people who want to stay away from the more traditional styles, stones and shapes and keep a touch of originality.
Embrace the Classics
For anyone who wants to accessorize their summer wardrobe with some pieces which will stand the test of time and last more than just a season, why not invest in a timeless classic? For me, Suetables really mix classic styles with new and interesting design. Currently I am a huge fan of these silver bracelets.
